Summary: NULL

Wei Sheng and his band of basket-headed rascals are out toeliminate old Ho and his small band of swordsmen to gain control of the local salt mine, and with all the swordfights at his palace, he doesn't have to worry about a new interior latex. Both sides want master swordsman Wei Ching (Tien Yeh) on their side, but he'd much rather enjoy a pastoral life with Ho's cute daughter. But bearded, hulking lunatic Lo Lui, with his merciless sword and boomerang darts, also wants the girl -- a classic case of unrealistic expectations; he wipes out entire villages singlehandedly just for the fun of it, and wants nothing more than a match with peaceful Wei. Like most HK villains, he also has an evil laugh. By the time the movie's finished, everybody's killed everybody else for a pile of salt. Solid martial arts action is sometimes reminiscent of Japanese samurai flix; filmed in Crane Scope (?).
